Legendary’s Digital Media and Crackle have premiered the first photo and announced the full principal cast for “Dead Rising: Watchtower,” the upcoming feature-length project based on the popular video game series.
Set during a large-scale zombie outbreak, the story follows a group that must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic – all indications pointing to a government conspiracy.
Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory, Virginia Madsen and Dennis Haysbert have already been announced for the project. Joining them will be Rob Riggle, Harley Morenstein, Keegan Connor Tracy, and Aleks Paunovic.
Riggle (“The Hangover”) will take on the iconic role of Frank West, a freelance photojournalist and the main protagonist of the first game. Paunovic plays a hardened criminal, Morenstein a menacing biker and his second-in-command, and Tracy as a straight-laced journalist.
“Dead Rising: Watchtower” will debut on Crackle ahead of release on SVOD, DVD, VOD and TV.
